Simon Says Stamp – Sweet Birds

Hello, Friends!

I have a colorful set of cards to share today using several new products from the latest Simons Says Stamp Hello Gorgeous Release!

I created four cards because I couldn’t help but stamp all the birds from the Sweet Birds set. I used Pawsitively Saturated Inks to stamp these colorful birds.  To get more shades of color, I double stamped some areas, and did second-generation stamping in others to get lighter shades.

Here is a list of all the colors I used:

Guava, Watermelon, Cherry
Marine, Cadette, Royal
Aspen, Sage, Pine
Celery, Limelicious, Ocean, Melon, Cantaloupe, Latte

I share my process in today’s video and I hope you enjoy watching!

For the background, I used the Delicate Floral Mandala and stamped over Ivory cardstock for a soft background.  I also added white foliage to my cards using die-cuts from the Tattered Leaves and Olive Leaves dies.

To prepare the finish of my cards, I embossed sentiments from the Cathy Zielske Spring in My Step stamp and die set.  Once all the pieces were completed, I was able to assemble the card by adhering the foliage stems with liquid adhesive, then the sentiments and birds with foam adhesive for dimension.

I finished my cards today by embellishing them with sequins from the Seashore Sequin Mix.  A card is rarely ever done without some bling!  I hope you enjoyed these cards!  Thanks so much for visiting today!
